    The text of Chapter III is now complete to the end of p. 62, but here differs from that of Three Men on the Bummel, which is otherwise identical. Nor does it resemble the slightly abbreviated version serialized in the Saturday Evening Post. The text omitted by the typesetter of the first Dodd, Mead impression has been replaced by a version presumably written by someone other than Jerome. The new text is not consistent with the chronology of the story. In the original, George proposes getting to London early on Wednesday morning and spending an hour or two shopping with a German-English phrase book, because their boat does not leave Tilbury until noon; in this version, he states that their boat does not leave Harwich until Thursday evening, and proposes spending the time from Wednesday morning until then ‘doing’ London. But in Chapter IV they follow the original Wednesday schedule, leaving Tilbury at noon on Wednesday.
